Kia recalls certain hybrid models due to possible overheating

- Overheating possible in electrical relay

- 5,020 UK models recalled for remedial inspection

- No fires or injuries reported

Kia is among the leading carmakers to offer hybrid and plug-in hybrid models across Europe. Not looking to risk any mishap, the Korean automaker is conducting a voluntary recall of 5,020 Niro hybrid and plug-in hybrid models in the UK due to possible overheating in an electrical relay.

Vehicles will be inspected at dealerships and affected relays will be replaced at no cost to customers under this recall identified as part of the company’s on-going research and development programme. Kia says it is not aware of any failures causing fires nor of any injuries but is undertaking the recall to ensure the issue is swiftly corrected.

The models affected were built between November 2016 and September 2017. Kia will contact all affected owners and the inspection and potential replacement should take about one hour. Chris Lear, Director of After Sales commented: “The safety of our customers is our number one priority and we are taking this action to ensure their vehicles are not affected in any way.”
